Essir is the only world-wide school in Information Retrieval. It’s a scientific event with temporal regularity founded in 1990, which gave rise to a series of Summer Schools held to provide high quality teaching of information retrieval and advanced information retrieval topics to a mostly European audience of researchers and research students. Essir is typically a week-long event consisting of a series of lectures and seminars delivered from invited lecturers recognized as experts in the field.
